CONCERT TIPS FOR MAY BY ALEX SIMU

CONCERT TIPS FOR MAY BY ALEX SIMU
Alex Simu plays clarinets of all varieties, including a unique tenor clarinet made by himself—the only one in the world. In his quintet he plays tenor sax and viola da gamba as well. At the Bimhuis the band will present the album Echoes of Bucharest, which is dedicated to the birthplace of the band leader. Alex Simu moved from Romania to Amsterdam for his conservatory studies and stayed here, after getting his master’s degree in New York. He made name with the group Arifa and won a Golden Calf Award for his soundtrack for the film Beyond Sleep. Alex recommends the following concerts:

CHRIS POTTER QUARTET
I did hear Chris Potter many times, though he always sounded fantastic he never played twice the same,
I’m curious what is going to be this time.
